It was a boring 0-0 draw for Croatia as they held out for a draw against Belgium, meaning Perisic was not involved from an attacking perspective. Still, he will take it as the one point was enough for Croatia to secure their place in the knockout stages of the competition.

Mon 28 Nov – Bentancur plays full match for Uruguay
It has been an underwhelming tournament so far for Uruguay. They need a win against Ghana and for other results to go their way, otherwise they will be out of the competition. Bentancur has been one of their more impressive players though and he was excellent again versus Portugal despite the loss.

Mon 28 Nov – Son plays full game for South Korea
Unless results go their way, it looks like South Korea will be exitting the competition early. They have just one point in two games after losing to Ghana today. Son played the whole game but got no goal returns and, in all honesty, did not play great either.
Sun 27 Nov – Ivan Perisic bags two assists for Croatia

Tottenham boy Sarr was brought in for the final 12 minutes for Senegal.

Tue 22 Nov – Hojbjerg has quiet game for Denmark, plays full 90 minutes
Hojbjerg kicked off his World Cup campaign not in the manner he would have liked, drawing 0-0 with Tunisia. He had moments of class but overall, a quiet game from the midfielder.
Tue 22 Nov – Romero subbed off after disappointing defensive display
Argentina did not play well against Saudi Arabia as they fell short. Romero conceded two goals in quick concession before the defender was rightly subbed off. He will look to improve in the next match.
Mon 21 Nov – Ben Davies plays well at centre-back for Wales
